    If someone asked me to unblock a toilet I'd ram their head in it and not let them up until they'd eaten the contents...!

    I would have to pass if our receptionist asked me to help her with that!

    Well no. You see the regular guy is rather tall and portly and (being a rather short guy) it looked like Santa had made a wish on the Zoltar machine and become a small child. Just ridiculous, so the PO stepped in and filled the costume.

    Oh yes - that was just impossible - but it WAS IT related so it doesn't really count as a weird request

    The entire support staff got asked to sing I Get By With A little From My Friends when the old head left. When I told them how much beer I needed before I was prepared to sing in public (not to mention a taxi home) I got out of it.

    A couple kids knocked on my door asking for glue sticks, I said we're the it department, why would we have glue sticks? Turns out the head of science told them to "go find the technician and get some glue sticks"

    Last week, one of the teachers asked me if I would collect a lady from a nearby town who was coming in to give dance lessons. I asked where she lived and then said isn't that on your way in to school. Oh yes she said, I hadn't thought of that, what a good idea.

    Having seen said dance teacher I'm kicking myself. She is stunning
